On its 10th birthday, the Airlie Beach Festival of Music returns on 4–6 November and has dropped a line-up inclusive of UK music royalty The Animals as well as Eskimo Joe, Rick Price, Ben Lee, Rogue Traders and The Badloves

Located in a town known for its coastal charm, great weather and party atmosphere, this year’s festival hopes to draw tourists to the Whitsundays and promote the region as Queensland’s heart of live music.  

Tourism Whitsundays Chief Executive Officer Rick Hamilton said the all-star line-up meant music fans would be well advised to secure a spot early.

“The Airlie Beach Festival of Music is the perfect event for visitors to package with a diverse array of accommodation and tours, but due to its ever-increasing popularity I would suggest booking now to avoid disappointment,” Mr Hamilton said. 

“This is one of those weekends you don’t want to miss and a unique chance to experience live music in the Heart of the Great Barrier Reef.”

Ticketholders will be able to see a live performance from original band members of The Animals, Mickey Gallagher and John Steel, who said fans could expect all the greatest hits from the band's repertoire.

“The onstage setup and the crew will be top class… fans can expect to see and hear a cracking good band performing timeless classics from The Animals repertoire – just sit back and enjoy it, we won't let you down” Mr Steel said.

Tickets for the three-day festival cost $300 but include exclusive access to the preceding Passport to Airlie Grand Final on 3 November and the official After Party on 7 November headlined by Superjesus frontwoman Sarah McLeod.
